When I say, “Let it go” I don’t mean to completely give up on conceiving a child. Letting it go means more about the pain in the heart. This can mean many things to many people. It can mean letting go of fear that one might be childless forever. It may mean that you can emotionally process this journey without the self-depreciation or loathing. For many it may mean letting go of the bitterness harbored toward people who don’t “get it”. What is it in our hearts that can hold heavy weights of hurt without any resolution.
Faith occurs when we cease trying to do something by our own efforts and trust Someone bigger to help us through it all. It is trusting that God will bring a resolution that fits just you as well as the strength to accept that for your life.
Isaiah 54:1 “Sing, O barren, you who have not borne. break forth into singing and cry aloud, you who have not labored with child. For more are the children of t he desolate than the children of the married woman, says the Lord.”
Singing the sacrificial song, when everything screams, “No fair’ somehow breaks through the pain in the heart and for a time there is peace.
That is my wish for all who experience the pain of infertility – peace.
Sing your song, let it go.
